scissel

A very, very tiny schematic drawing most often found in WWI era submarines where space was at a premium. Each scissel contained complete information on electricals, hydraulics, and plumbing in the submarine on a two by two inch sheet of paper.
As they were so small, early submarines came with one sailor who's job was to do nothing but read the scissels. He was known as the Scisseler. (Pronounced sizzler, like the restaurant only not spelled the same.)

scissel n. a vessel for scissies.


(Oh dear, look - this double post has disqualified me! This is a shame. My apologies to all.)

I'd like to take this opportunity while this round is revolving ever so slowly to recognize some of my favorite entries thus far, and to regurgitate some of my deepest journaled thoughts about life as a twelve-year-old from twenty-odd years ago. However, this could be considered a presumptuous use of the thread, so perhaps I'll refrain for the time being, letting this serve as fair warning.


scissel n. the rare triple entry which tears a hole in the time-space continuum.

scissel n. the most common meter used by those who drum their fingers upon a table.

Blanche tapped out her signature scissel of impatience on the crisp white linen as she waited for Humberto to conclude his cell phone chat with his agent.

scissel - n. ambitious substitute leader or interloper who appears to the relief of all concerned to fill a leadership vacuum, awarding prizes indiscriminately and buying free drinks in a raucous manner (see scisselizer - one who nominates a scissel).

"Where's that handsome boy Jedi that just walked in?" Blanche demanded. "He'd make a wonderful scissel if only his chin could clear the bar!"
